binding on a carved top


Recommended Posts

I don't proclaim to be a carved top expert, I've done 2-3, and I found it easier to route the binding ledge first, while my top was still flat. I was very comfortable with that way as opposed to trying to route it afterwards.

Worked for me, but you have to calculate everything out properly first, and you have to be careful to protect that ledge while doing your carving. :D

I route my binding channel before carving. Then I complete 95% of my carve, glue in the binding and finish everything up to the final shape. This allows me to sand away any glue which gets on the top whilst attaching the binding, but reduces the risk of damaging the binding during the carving.
